The Chairman


At each Lifeboat station there are two sort of separate organisations. The Operational team and the fundraising/administrative team. The later is known as the Branch Guild. In our case this is headed by Robin Tiller their Chairman. Robin brings energy and drive to this important job which is tremendous to observe. He has lots to do, mainly involving writing letters and trying to organise disorganised bunches of volunteers, and of course at this time of year he is the figure head of our lifeboat week. No easy task. Last night I had the curious pleasure of attending one of the planning meetings for this years extravaganza. Rather surprisingly it was good. Robin cut to the chase and focused on the details of what will make the week a success. This all left me with the feeling that if the weather Gods consider us favourably, then we could be in for a great week. Bring it on.

On another note.......did I tell you that it is only two days till the start of the summer holidays? Any ideas how I'm going to fill six weeks off work?

Dancing in the moonlight
everybodys feeling warm and bright
it's such a fine and natural sight
everybody's dancing in the moonlight

We like our fun and we never fight
you cant dance and stay uptight
it's a supernatural delight
everybody was dancing in the moonlight

Come and volunteer on Swanage Railway by way of a change! We need all the help we can get. I'll help wash the boat down in exchange!
